Formerly Thomas's Choral Society
Battersea Choral Society has become one of London’s most established choirs, over the past eighteen years.
Brought together by a love of singing, this friendly choir welcomes members who, in turn, approach rehearsals and concerts with
enthusiasm and commitment.
We rehearse every Tuesday evening in Battersea under the
expert direction of Sam Evans, and present three major concerts each year
in the beautiful setting of Holy Trinity Sloane Square.
Our recent concert, on 24 June, showed how the choir sang without their scores for the first time! A resounding success and thoroughly enjoyed by audience and choir members. We were incredibly lucky to be joined by such talented soloists and orchestra members.
We look forward to sharing our Christmas Carol Concert with you on Tuesday 12 December 2017.
On Saturday 25 March 2017, Battersea Choral Society performed Dvorak's stunning cantata Stabat Mater at Holy Trinity Sloane Square, accompanied by a full orchestra and outstanding international soloists. Here's a taster from a Tuesday night rehearsal.

Dido and Aeneas
Welcome to all the Pleasures
~A huge THANK YOU to our fabulous soloists and orchestra~
Dido and Aeneas was first performed in 1689 at a girls' boarding school in Chelsea. The story is based on Book IV of Virgil's Aeneid. It recounts the love of Dido, Queen of Carthage, for the Trojan hero, Aeneas, and her despair when he abandons her.
Welcome to all the Pleasures was commissioned by the Musical Society of London in 1683. They organised a festival for the great patroness of music, and in honour of the celebration of the feast of St Cecilia, for which Purcell had written the Ode.
